Thanks to your generosity, this past summer 94 middle school students from very low income households, including children living in homeless shelters, enjoyed six days that will last them a lifetime in the Pocono Mountains at Camp Zeke.
For virtually all of them, this was their only vacation away from concrete neighborhoods. These children enjoyed fun, fresh air, and friendship in a nurturing, caring, peaceful environment. The young people developed new dreams and the self-confidence to pursue them.

University Collaboration

Our ongoing collaboration with Columbia University Departments of Athletics and Science brings very special programs to our schools.

A gala to remember

The return of our Gala was a resounding success! With inspiring performances, excellent honoree speakers, and wonderful food from House of Joy, the event was a blast for everyone.
